I came across this quote on Tony Morgan’s blog (via Sam Chand):
Training is about a task whereas development is about a person. Churches are realizing they have highly trained and poorly developed leaders with built in low ceiling and capacity.
This quote really struck me. Training is important–don’t get me wrong. Training is certainly a part of a developing people but development is much bigger than just training.
In the long run, I think we would all agree that developing leaders is more important than just training them. Do you have a plan for developing leaders? How does training fit within that plan?
So, are you developing leaders or just training them?
